ArtBeat: Music for Corporate, Therapeutic & Community
Artbeat's Training, Consultancy & Events
As well as facilitating music in health settings, ArtBeat has a strong commitment to broadening its application, as well as training others. Jane has been a long-term student of Arthur Hull, the foremost exponent of drum circle facilitation, who developed a methodology of enabling people of any experience to play together, based on the quality of listening and relationship between the group members. Strong emphasis is placed on the quality of experience of the participants, and in valuing their unique contributions, which makes community drum circle facilitation an ideal tool to work with marginalised and disadvantaged groups, and learners of any age.
ArtBeat: Rhythmic Communication
Korea, Malaysia, India, USA, UK, Europe...
ArtBeat specialises in working with public service and voluntary sector organisations, particularly in fields of health, education, and community development, because that's where we work the rest of the time! Increasingly, organisations are recognising the benefits of drumming not just for service users, but also for the staff teams that serve them. Group drumming offers an accessible experience which integrates mind, body, individual expression, and group interaction.
Music Facilitation and CPD
For Teambuilding, Staff Training and Development
For the past seven years, Jane has worked in close collaboration with occupational therapy staff and music charities across several hospitals and mental health projects. Through this practical work, and her recently completed PhD study, Jane has developed the concept of 'Integrative Musical Interaction' - a way of working musically that maximises trust, reciprocity, and builds confidence and skill in interacting with others.
Rhythm, movement and song to stimulate social interaction, participation, and memory. Jane has over 7 years of experience collaborating with occupational therapy and activity staff, bringing musical engagement to people at a variety of stages of dementia. ArtBeat creates work that involves both carers and cared-for, where music provides an accessible and enjoyable joint activity.
ArtBeat has fifteen years of experience in bringing music to healthcare contexts. Voice and drumming are the most fundamental and easily accessible means of making music, so that's what we use most often.
Jane was one of only two UK musicians selected to participate in both EU Leonardo Da Vinci 'Transfer of Innovation' and 'Train the Trainer' European collaboration projects, with Musique et Santé, (France) as the lead training partner. Jane now specialises in training professional musicians (and organisations) to work confidently, adaptively and sensitively in hospital settings.
